86th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, November 2012


On a bright, sunny Turkey Day morning, the many-legged, many-ballooned millipede that was the 86th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade made its way along the western edge of Central Park and down Sixth Avenue.

RECOMMENDED: Thanksgiving in New York guide

Performers danced, played, waved and twirled; Whoopi Goldberg hailed the crowd from the prow of a pirate ship, and Don McLean belted “American Pie” on a rolling effigy of Mount Rushmore. And then there were the inflatable giants filling the sky: Sonic the Hedgehog, Buzz Lightyear, Pikachu, Kermit the Frog and all the rest, flashing broad grins and straining against their strings.
